** Maria, who is a DoorstopBabyDoorstopBaby.



* In ''Manga/{{Eyeshield 21}}'', the parents of the members of the protagonistâs high school football team take little to no interest whatsoever in the activities of their children (with the exception of Komisubi's folks.) But this trope really comes into play during the Death March storyline, when the team is given to the option to spend their entire summer vacation in America, enduring a hellish and potentially life-threatening TrainingFromHell. All of them accept the offer without consulting, informing or even thinking about their parents, and none of them are ever shown contacting their folks to let them know that they'll be on another continent for the next several weeks.
** Which is a shame, because we'd love to see that phone call. "Hi, mom? I won't be home for dinner. I'm going to be pushing a truck from Houston to Las Vegas. I should be back in about six weeks, assuming I don't die of heat exhaustion. Tell sis she can have the Hot Pocket I left in the freezer. Bye!"
** We do see a few scenes on their return from the Death March in volume 11. Some parents are largely kept in the dark, like Sena's parents and Yukimitsu's [[EducationMama mother]], and some get more of the gory details, like Komusubi's dad and Monta's (apparently apathetic) mother.

** Haruka's {{telepathy}} powers plus InnocentlyInsensitive nature also caused this trope--by blurting out the affairs ''both'' her parents had in front of them. Both of them abandoned her to her grandfather, with the mother stated that [[WhamLine she wished Haruka to not been born]].

* In ''Manga/KoufukuGraffiti'', Ryou's parents have been working overseas since she was eight. Her grandmother who has been looking after her for the past ''six years'', has died shortly before the beginning the series, making her a case of MinorLivingAlone as well.

** Eren's mother is killed by Titans at the beginning of the series, and his father vanishes in mysterious circumstances shortly afterwards. [[spoiler: It's finally revealed during the ''Uprising'' Arc that he's dead too, though the reason is too shocking and convoluted to even attempt an explanation here.]]

* Most of the recurring characters in ''GetBackers'' are over the age of eighteen, but there are several teenagers with varying levels of parental absences. Most of the overage characters had dead or missing parents as well, but there are some semi-healthy adoptive relationships. Also some inversion, since Juubei and Sakura abandoned their family in order to follow Kazuki, and Toshiki is implied to have run away from home after defeating his half-brother. There are flashback scenes that show [[spoiler: that Ban specifically was abandoned for his abilities and handed off to his grandmother, who has the same powers.]].

* In ''Manga/YuYuHakusho'', Yusuke lives with his drunken, cynical, goodhearted but irresponsible single mother Atsuko, who IIRC was kicked out of her house when she got pregnant at age 14. His actual father is never mentioned in the anime, but Atsuko is seen visiting with a man implied to be his father late in the manga. (Raizen is not actually his father, but an ancestor several generations back.)]

* Any resident of [[SchoolForScheming Wammy's House]] in ''Manga/DeathNote'' is an orphan. It is never stated how any of them BECAME orphans. [[note]] It's also possible that they aren't ''actually'' orphans, but rather ''[[FridgeHorror kidnapping victims]]'', given that Wammy's seems to exist only to find a new successor to L. This, however, is not confirmed. [[/note]]
